Was The Declaration Of Independence Written On Hemp Paper?

Aired on: 2012.11.01

Was the Declaration of Independence written on Hemp Paper? It is a stoner legend. But this legend is unfortunately a Myth. Partially. Today on Lex's World we explore what's true and what's false about it. The actual Declaration is written on Parchment, which is animal skin... the copies of the declaration aren't very exciting either... but when you get into the history of the rough draft... or rough DRAFTS, the coincidences get interesting. Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin both had an interesting relationship with Hemp. Franklin owned a Hemp paper mill... could they have used Hemp paper while drafting the Declaration?
